SportsRohit was shown wrong after ignoring the DRS call from Sarfaraz

Date:

In the first innings of England’s Test match against India in Dharamshala, Rohit Sharma committed a DRS error. Opening batsman Zak Crawley of England failed to make a glance catch off India spinner Kuldeep Yadav’s delivery on the fifth ball of the 26th over. When the ball struck wicketkeeper Dhruv Jurel, it lobbed toward the leg side, where Sarfaraz Khan’s quick reflexes allowed him to catch it before it hit the ground. An overwhelming appeal from India, particularly Sarfaraz, followed. Although Sarfaraz was confident he had a wicket there, the ground officials were not persuaded. But Jurel had other ideas, and as a result, Rohit denied Sarfaraz’s request for a DRS.

The captain was taken aback when UltraEdge and the replays showed that Crawley had actually edged the ball. Following his viewing of it on the big screen, Sarfaraz simply grinned while the Indian captain giggled. On the opening day of fifth and final Test on Thursday, India showed England how to bat on a flat track by easily reaching 135 for one at stumps, exposing the frailty of England how to bat on a flat track by easing 135 for one at stumps, exposing the frailty of England’s batsmen against superior spin once more.

After choosing to bat, England found themselves completely overwhelmed by the skill of left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who took four wickets in as many tests, allowing India to quickly bowl out the visitors for 218 in their opening innings.

In the brilliant sunshine, India elected to bat first, and a 104-run partnership between Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal put the hosts firmly in control. At the end of 30 overs, India was 135 for 1. Apart from Rohit, Shubhman Gill was also batting.

Soon after becoming just the second Indian player to score 7090 runs in a series (the first being the great Sunil Gavaskar, who did so twice against the West Indies in 1971 and 1978-79), the southpaw executed a well-planned charge down the ground.

Compared to their Indian counterparts, England’s pacers and spinners did not benefit much from the ball. Jaiswal was initially cautious and awaited the spinners to come into action. In his first over, he hit Bashir three sixes into the stands, two of these individuals over extra cover, and put him to the sword. On the other side, the Indian captain also played with assurance. In his fourth over of the inning, he singled his
